Funding for Waste Recycling Projects won by community

Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority and its contactor Veolia Environmental Services have pushed community schemes to recycle waste in 2011.

A total of £20,000 has been awarded to four community projects for their ideas on waste awareness workshops, educational workshops and re-use swap shops. This funding will motivate communities to become environmentally friendly and support sustainable development.

Some projects include showing low income families how they can reduce, re-use and recycle waste; in addition to this a recycling video game has been created for school children to encourage recycling.

This funding is available to community sector and not-for-profit organisations to encourage communities to get involved in sustainable waste management.

Director of Veolia Environmental Services Merseyside & Halton, Alex Paterson, said, “We hope that the projects we have chosen will bring positive changes to the local community and promote recycling and sustainability”.
